Conor McGregor Teases Potential Entry Into Irish Politics

Former UFC two-weight world champion Conor McGregor has light-heartedly hinted at the possibility of entering into Irish politics.

McGregor’s comments came after his recent response to the Dublin riots that had broken out in the country. According to reports, five people were stabbed, which included three children, outside a school in Dublin. Riots broke out after suggestions that the perpetrator may have been a foreign national. McGregor expressed his dissatisfaction with the Irish leadership and their immigration policy through a series of tweets.

“There is grave danger among us in Ireland that should never be here in the first place, and there has been zero action done to support the public in any way, shape or form with this frightening fact. NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Make change or make way. Ireland for the victory. God bless those attacked today, we pray,” McGregor

“There will be change in Ireland, mark my words. The change needed. In the last month, innocent children stabbed leaving school. Ashling Murphy murdered. Two Sligo men decapitated. This is NOT Ireland’s future! If they do not act soon with their plan of action to ensure Ireland’s safety, I will,” McGregor

Those tweets are currently being investigated over whether they incited violence. Since then, Elon Musk backed the idea of McGregor entering into politics by stating it was ‘not a bad idea.’ And now McGregor appears to have endorsed those comments.

Nevertheless, McGregor’s focus is on the UFC. Following his enrollment into USADA, there is an expectation that he will fight Michael Chandler next year, with a summer date looking most likely. And if that is the case, any political ambitions will have to be put on the back burner for now.
